    Could somebody please explain to me the difference between search traffic and organic traffic on google analytics? The metrics for each vary by as much as 50% for my website traffic

    Good question Joe. You're right in saying that there is a difference in search traffic and organic traffic. You're also correct in saying that the metrics for each vary by as much as 50%, and the rest! Website traffic reminds me of the old saying
    “ The good will of the governed will be starved if not fed by the good deeds of the governors. " I learnt a lot and made a fortune with Facebook ads, which earns a pretty penny let me tell you. Sometimes it is a good idea to sum up and dispose of the trite and conventional addressses before going on to your own. This has the advantage of indicating to the web user that you are going to be neither trite nor conventional. I could go on and on about traffic until the cows come home. Let me know if this clears it up for you.

    Keep earning the green,

    WTF, is this a language barrier issue? Maybe I have not had enough coffee this morning but this seems to make 0 sense

    I believe Search Traffic includes a combination Paid Traffic (ie cpc, cpm, and etc) and Organic Traffic.

    Organic Traffic is strictly organic (no paid).

    Search traffic means traffic comes to your site through search engine results.The SERP contains both paid(ie CPC, PPC, display and etc.,) and organic results
    organic traffic is traffic comes to your site as a result of unpaid search results.
